Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDGE July 1974 Cablevision says few folks want to star in their own TV show By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer but 110 action. That is the scene at the studios of Cablevision Lethbridge Ltd. A television studio and equipment plus broadcast time are available to Lethbridge individuals and groups without but nobody is taking advantage of the opportunity to com- municate their cause to the community. Local community programs grind to a stop during summer months and only about two hours of local programming originates each week from Lethbridge during the fall and winter months even though Cablevision has offered a channel to the community all day seven days a including prime time viewing hours. At a time when individuals and groups are clamouring for the opportunity to use the community television channel in some urban areas and are making presentations to the government in other cities to obtain a community Cablevision's program direc- tor finds it difficult to unders- tand why the Lethbridge com- munity is not taking advan- tage of its channel. Len Plourd has contacted local churches and schools offering his company's service and channel to them. He has received very little response in return. is he the community is a bit toward using television for its own benefit. Some people have shown an interest in using the channel 2 when first contacted but they never follow up when they find out that they have to do most of the organizing of the program. Mr. Plourd will assist any individual or group in the city design a program but he says it is important that most of the organization of a program originate from the com- munity. is what community television is all Programming originating directly from the he explained. People in Lethbridge are just not prepared to put in the time to make a program that will carry their message to other people in the Mr. Plourd maintains from his ex- periences during the three years he has spent with Cablevision. Cablevision has bent over backwards to encourage local community programming. It has made Channel 2 available for programs from 9 a.m. to midnight seven days a provided a studio and assisted with program development and offered to do programming on location if required. Its taping crew is also available to the community after- noon and evening and only 48 hours notice is required to book the facilities. The staff at Cablevision per- forms a duel role for the com- pany they work for. The receptionists double as televi- sion program hostesses or stage hands and the technicians and cable in- stallers often find themselves behind a camera or operating the sound system. The program director is also the switcher and director and even the company manager has pushed camera on occasion. Most of the two hours a week community programm- ing on Channel 2 during the past year was organized and programmed by Cablevision staff. Dog university and college basketball high school football religious programs and childrens' music programs have all been a part of the community television broad- casts. The music program featur- ing children was very successful until ran out of who were willing to Mr. Plourd says. Youth orientated programs have been the most difficult to he points out. Special programs on Cablevision during the past year included three 30 minute programs on what high school is all a series on the Alberta legislature in action just recently political broadcasts involving the local federal election candidates who were willing to par- ticipate. Two of the more successful programs to originate from the studios of Cablevision were a homemaker show and an interview-style half hour public affairs show. Info-Two dealt with that occurred in the Lethbridge community and featured public service announcements at the conclusion of each program. The homemaker show specialized in all aspects of home economics. Despite the lack of interest in community television in Cablevision is proceeding with plans to ex- pand within the next year. Included in the plans is a new building that will contain a color-equipped studio.
